US-based managed security services firms Netsurion and EventTracker have agreed to merge.
The duo are combining their resources in order to grow their business in managed network security and security information and event management, technologies designed to shield customers against the growing array of hacking and malware threats. Both firms focus on handling the complete security for small to medium biz or the branch offices of larger enterprises.
By combining, the firms aim to pool management and development resources to offer a broader suite of technologies and services. Providence Strategic Growth, the majority shareholder of Netsurion, has agreed to make a “significant equity investment” of unspecified value in order to “accelerate the growth of the combined company.” ®
